, deans on the professional staff. now, imagine if the obama administration felt the same responsibility to manage the federal government in the same way. >> a sequester for the university. all right. jason? >> this is a miss for new york governor andrew cuomo who wants to extend the temporary tax increase on high income earners in the state after promising to let it expire. for the second time extending that temporary tax increase. do you think voters would learn after a while they're being played here? apparently not. out in california governor jerry brown sold californians on a temporary tax increase for high income earners in his state. i guess the blue state liberals never learn. >> paul: bret? >> briefly a hit for pope francis off to a fantastic start and i think this is obviously true for catholics and even as a non-catholic you see a pope getting out and mingling with people and showing love and humility to the people assemblying by the hundreds of thousands in rome to see him. next week, he's going to go and wash the feet of inmates in a prison for young offenders and this is th
constitution and restore marriage to opposite-sex couples only. on the same night californians voted barack obama in office, they ovgot this vote back. >> they created the judiciary and legislature and they control the constitution. they decided that marriage should be between a man and woman. >> scott: supporters of gay marriage asked the california supreme court to strike down the newly enacted proposition 8, but in 2009, the state court upheld it. that was the end in state court, but marked an avenue in federal court. in 2010, federal judge walker struck it down saying it violated the equal protection under the law. in a split decision, a three-judge panel of the circuit court of appeals upheld that ruling last february. setting the stage before the u.s. supreme court. this past valentine's day, gay couples demanded marriage licenses at san francisco city hall as they have every year since 2004. they were turned away. >> it affects us in so many ways in our every day life. what we want is to be treated fairly. >> scott: i spoke with lieutenant governor gavin newsom recently about what co
recognizing same-sex marriages in the states where they are legal. after first defending the law, the obama administration switched sides and now says it's unconstitutional. both these cases come to the court in a political climate that's very different from what it was just four years ago when prop 8 was passed. janelle, raj. >> thanks, pete. >>> a bay area boy is now getting worldwide attention after preparing his own argument in favor of same-sex marriage and then sending it to the nation's highest court. 12-year-old daniel sent a letter to supreme court chief justice john roberts about next week's case. even though daniel and his sister have two dads, daniel feels he has a lot in common with the chief justice, who has two adopted children of his own. before mailing his letter to roberts, daniel read it on youtube with hopes of reaching all the justices. >> you and i both know that family goes deeper than blood. i was lucky to be adopted by two guys i can both call dad. >> it's never a good feeling to have your future in somebody else's hands. but we're nervous, you know, and we understa
and president obama are literally on the same page regarding iran. both now believe that there is time on the clock to try to resolve this diplomatically. once he left israel, obviously, he announced some additional assistance to jordan which is shouldering the most significant burden in terms of syrian refugees. i think there, it's probably most important is what he heard from prime minister netanyahu, and king abdullah, and whether that sense of urgency enables him to consider a wider range of actions going forward. he's been very cautious about syria over the past two years. >> martin, earlier this week on our air you were characterizing the palestinians' reaction to the president as spanning from perhaps indifference to outright hostility. this trip, does this change this and allow for more goodwill on that front? >> not really, no. i wouldn't say so, alex. if anything there's probably more anger. there was a sense that obama was going so strongly out of his way to get the israelis on his side, to show them how much he respected and 1i78 pathized with them. he didn't feel that was
this for my friend barack obama, and netanyahu could make the same case for the people criticizing him at home for apologizing to erdogan. >> you mentioned syria. when the president got to jordan, he and king abdullah held a joint press conference, news conference, and the the president announced there he is going to be asking congress for more money to go to jordan, to help them deal with all the refugees coming in from syria. why is that important for the obama administration? >> judy, when i said there were two of the three allies in the region, the third most important ally there for the united states is jordan, a tiny country, but punches above the weight. jordan security forces and intelligence forces are excellent. and i described in the earlier piece some of the role it's playing. but king abdullah's on somewhat shaky ground, the economy is bad, and part of the problem is the refugees are a huge pressure point as the king sort of eloquently said today. few of us saw the foreign minister this afternoon who said it's almost as if-- he said it's as if another eight or nine, the king said
provisions were passed under the obama administration both have the same characteristics. hester pierce talked-about the biggest issue, i believe that is true. that is the thing we have to look at most carefully. that is the area that gets the greatest danger, and i spend a lot of time on it in the book. as a foundation for crony capitalism, there is nothing better, nothing more dangerous than what has been done with the financial stability oversight council. it will now have the opportunity to declare certain non-bank financial institutions are dangers to the financial system and have to be stringently regulated. what that will mean over time as more and more of those institutions pull in to their select category that the fed will have an opportunity to control what those institutions say on all matters of public policy. if one of those institutions should suggest the administration on some issue weather is the trade issue, it will be discreet warning, and tone that down and we don't have to have this controversy. that message is the essence of crony capitalism and will be made possibl
in infrastructure in the same way. what do you mean? >> i think that's right. as you mentioned the obama stimulus did pour about $150 billion into our infrastructure and its build america bonds was a hidden stimulus inside the stimulus put in another $180 billion. that's a start. that's how you start to create the sort of strong infrastructure that makes people want to make our economy more competitive and make people want to invest in us. you have to ask what the goal is. it's not just to build more roads or sewers, you want to get people places. as opposed to just building roads. sometimes that involves more infrastructure, more tell commuting. sometimes smarter infrastructure. >> the goal is a good standard of living and the idea that businesses will invest and create jobs? it makes companies want to hire people. people want to live in these places and that's largely what it does. >> exactly. you want good mobility to get to work so you can get around. you want good drinking water so that you don't get sick. you want a good energy system so that the lights stay on. this is the basics that make
audience on a week when president obama made his very first trip from israel since taking office we continue to see more of the same from campaigner in chief. he met with israel's leaders but offered no real solutions for middle east peace. it will take a lot more in a few days to fix the reckless foreign policy of the last now fewer years. he is aware of the challenge. >> i'm meeting none of these challenges will not be easy. ultimately it's not a hard problem. its hard slog to work through all these issues. it's hard. >> sean: aside from hitting the links in tiger woods and paling around with beyonce, it's hard work being the leader of the world. his trip didn't go entirely as planned. it included the burning of american flag and images of obama himself. then there was some car trump when the armored cadillac limo that was supposed to transport the president, that broke down. they put in the wrong fuel and it had to be towed. what would be a speech but without a few hecklers. >> i believe your future is bound to ours. >> sean: with reminders of the week for his failures to address
the same and joined our state legislature and some eight other seniors to support their effort state wide and to support president obama and senior fine fine stein on their national events and i want to take a moment to make sure that we hong hospital members of sandy hook continue keeping them in our minds and but also, that things that are not as announced but every single week whether it's oakland san jose or san francisco, that is young kid and i get this text every night calf can american meal 17 -years-old victim, to the chess, to the head. we have got to end this gun violence we have got do embrace, strategies that work so that, you can keep our cities safe. that will help us, as much as education is, as much as investment in housing is as much as investing in buss as well. it's got to be the whole package and i don't care what poles say or what political groups say it's the right thing do let's all join together and make sure that happens. (applause) >>> i'll close i want to thank dan and tim for awful their good economic analysis, i think they guided you with that i'll be hap
for supporters of same-sex marriage, what is that going to mean for president obama's legacy on gay marriage? >> it's complicated, because the supreme court could rule any number of ways. it could be a very sweeping decision or a very narrow decision. i think the court likes to be with the times. and if the president of the united states is saying we should not be discriminating against people who want to marry somebody they love. and a majority of the country supports gay marriage, you're going to see more and more alimit of all the different parties on that. >> if the high court decides on doma, what does that mean for opponents for same-sex marriage? is that a settled issue, but is it like obama care and we'll still be talking about it years from now? >> we'll still be talking about it. let's let the states decide one at a time and that's probably the best way. public opinion is definitely shifting. maybe ten years from now, they all will be there. >> if the states decide, then we have patch work of laws where you have folks who can get married in california, but if they move to nebraska,

solutions don't work. that's what we've seen with obama care and a lot of things. this is for one college and should be emulated if possible because it's working there. >> yes. and other schools can come up with other ways to do the same thing. one of the things as john touched on with the government subsidies it's bloated administrative costs which is why the sticker price for tuition is going up at four times the rate of inflation. that's got to be stopped. this is one way. bless them. you'll see more of this in the future, three years instead of four years and more on line. the bloat is going one way or the other. >> isn't this better than another taxpayer bailout? >> i say no, don't cut off tuition lending, there isn't enough money in the system to make every dollar of financial aid take the form of a grant. it can't work that way. die like steve's idea that incentives should be realigned. i would like to see every college co-sign any dollar of any loan from the federal taxpayer. >> good luck on that. morgan, is this a good idea? >> i do. i think it's innovative. more colleges should
spending by $975 billion over the next ten year. in the same time the house plan would cut a lot more. $6 trillion nearly. and if all this is not enough number crunching for you president obama is expected to release his budget plan in early april. of course, we will take a look and report. >>> europe holding its collective breath time as the nation of cypress teethers on bankruptcy. a lot of wealthy europeans particularly russians park their money in cyprus bank. if the financial system fails. they will be asked to foot the bill for the bailout of the bank. we started seeing how they might pay with talk of a 20% tax on bank deposits. a chance the banks to collapse by tuesday there. >> reporter: harris that is absolutely right. unless there is a bailout deal and reportedly that could be closer tonight. as angry protesters kept up the pressure outside of government offices officials reportedly agreed to those levies on bank accounts. i'm curious is a run on the banks rather still expected even if they reach a bailout dial at this point? >> yeah, harris. that is a fear. we have been and the
alliance with egypt. obama does not have the ability. >> sean: jordan may not be far behind and syria is going the muslim brotherhood. >> he was most tossed out president in american-israel relations and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syria and the syrian brotherhood backed this individual and they said i don't know what his political aff
